Dolphins fight back on batting day at Centurion
Durban - The Hollywoodbets Dolphins fought fire with fire in the
afternoon session with the bat as they finished the day 188 for three,
trailing the Momentum Multiply Titans' first innings score by 253 runs
going into day three of their CSA 4-Day Franchise Series clash on
Youngsters Grant Roelofsen and Marques Ackerman took the match to the
hosts with the bat with both registering half centuries on day two as the
Dolphins scored at four runs an over for the majority of the 50 overs they
batted for on day two.
The Titans continued where they left off on day one and it was the
experienced Farhaan Behardien who went to his hundred in the morning
He and Dayaan Galiem registered a partnership of 109 before the latter
fell for a patient 44.
the Titans were in the stronger position at 400 for six, however the
Dolphins fought back well to take the final four wickets for 41 runs.
Behardien was dismissed for 114 and Rubin Hermann added 21 at the back
end of the innings.
Off-spinner Prenelan Subrayen was the pick of the Dolphins bowlers
picking up three for 97 in nearly 25 overs.
A pair of wickets was the return for Andile Phehlukwayo, Okuhle Cele and
Daryn Dupavillon while Eathan Bosch was disciplined finishing with one
wicket for 54 in 29 overs.
It was an unfortunate start with the bat for the Dolphins who lost
Vaughn van Jaarsveld to a run-out for 13.
However youngsters Grant Roelofsen and Marques Ackerman made sure that
they made up for the early wicket and put together a positive stand of
119 runs in just over 26 overs.
Ackerman was by far the more aggressive scoring briskly as he notched up
a first half century of the season with 69 off just 62 deliveries.
His innings included nine fours and two sixes.
At the other end it was a measured approach from Roelofsen who went to
his first half century for the Dolphins.
Roelofsen then continued until he was dismissed for 79 from 166 balls.
The Dolphins had moved to 183 for three, trailing the Titans by 258 runs.
The Dolphins added another five runs with Cody Chetty finishing 16 not out
and night watchman Prenelan Subrayen five not out at the close of play.
